It is time to start planning for Spring Cleaning and the Community Yard Sale at Covered Bridge Estates! Again, we plan to publish a yard sale map for distribution at the entrance to the community with your location and items.
If you have items to sell and would like to be listed on the map, please send your information to YardSaleRegistration@cbecai.com. Include your address and an idea of items you plan to sell by noon Friday, March 6. Let us know if you can assist in putting up (and taking down) signage on the property to promote the Yard Sale.
The following addresses represent those residents who chose to advertise what they are selling. This does not necessarily represent ALL of the participants in our neighborhood yard sale.
6215 French Creek Court
Household items, small kitchen appliances, dishes, glasses and other kitchen items, office supplies, suitcases and other bags, jewelry and jewelry boxes, pictures, cookbooks and other books, outdoor/garden items.
The donation bin for Feeding Empty Little Tummies (F.E.L.T.) will be at the Clubhouse through March 8. The F.E.L.T. backpack program is designed to meet the nutritional needs of Manatee County’s homeless school children during the weekends. To view their full brochure please click on this link.
If you would like to help this organization, please consider bringing one or more of the following food items and place them in the bin located in the Clubhouse:
The Clubhouse windows will be replaced starting Monday, February 24, and will take at least a week. Watch for updates once we find out which rooms (i.e., gym, pool room, office, etc.) are being affected and which will be available for use.
Food Truck Thursday at Covered Bridge Estates is an opportunity for residents to take the night off from cooking and swing by the Clubhouse for some good food provided by local food trucks. The goal is to provide at least one truck each Thursday (holidays may be excluded) from 4-8pm.
The following is our current schedule of food trucks which is subject to change, so please check this post regularly. The Facebook or website link included can help you learn more about each food truck and, in many cases, provide you with their menu.
Are we ready for Spring? Join us at the Clubhouse for the third annual “Concert In the Park” planned for Sunday March 8 from 3-6pm. This year we plan to expand the festivities by offering kids activities and some friendly competition such as corn hole, and other games for adults. Here is a summary of what is planned:
The Clubhouse Pool is closed for the next several days to complete the long-awaited resurfacing of the coping (water’s edging). This work has been scheduled for mid-February and involves removing the old coping material and replacing it with Travertine tiles which last longer and offer a better surface for swimmers. The company will also be resetting several pavers that have become uneven throughout the pool deck area.
The estimated date of completion is February 20, but check back for updates.
Our next Ladies Coffee is Friday, February 14 at 10am in the Clubhouse. Come and meet other ladies, share your holiday stories, and enjoy some coffee (or tea). Our Community Manager, Pat Naldrett-Bilodeau is anxious to meet newcomers, so invite your neighbors!
Starting February 4, 2020, we will be going back to Food Truck THURSDAYs only. We hope you enjoyed the twice a week offerings, but find that Thursdays work better for the Food Trucks and for scheduling.
Please enjoy Taste the Vibez Jamaican Cuisine and Purple Belle Ice Cream for our last Monday offering on February 3, 2020 from 4-8pm!
